American health care vs American patients.

The article reminds me of what I've seen in doctors waiting rooms.  A 200 plus pound woman with a baby tucked under her arm like a sack of potatoes eating a candy bar and drinking a Coke while waiting for her tests.  The number of people waddling around and then being put on diabetes  and heart medication along with requiring knee replacement because knees weren't designed to carry the extra 100 pounds is shameful.

Americans want a quick fix to avoid changing their life style.  Just give me a pill.  It extends to killing their unborn and lately they've started thinking about getting rid of the old and the infirm with assisted suicide.  No wonder medical costs are soaring, if you shoot yourself in the foot you will need a doctor.
